This Just In: Drinking Is More Fun With Bikes!

If there's one thing more satisfying than drinking beer from a funnel, it's drinking beer from a funnel on a bicycle. These photos, forwarded to me by a reader, confirm that the transformation of the track bike from racing equipment to wallet chain with wheels is nearly complete. They also prove that trackstands are the new kegstands. I wonder if elsewhere a bunch of middle-aged lawyers are sipping Chardonnay in their living rooms astride Colnagos.




Now back to the LeMondebacle.

Holy crap, I suddenly realize that I need to start drinking whisky while sitting on my MTB in my living room.

OpenYourEyes said...

For fun in the rockies some have reported to me that instead of imbibing in the living room, they like to do it before the descent from echo lake down into idaho springs. It's a drop of 3K feet in 13 miles . For extra fun it's done at dusk, as if the buzzed descent wasn't enough.

Let the good times roll.

I don't know if the "Just In" heading accurately characterizes this little bit of information.

Rosie took those. Show some credit y'all! They are indeed from Richmond, VA. Home of the hard party.

Hey there... that's one of my bikes! They are NOT designed for indoor binge drinking... that stuff should be outdoors only!

st louis my ass!

va is where we ride, where we reside, and probably where we'll die.

wishiwasmerckx said...

A double-double? Two posts for two days? One of which is a screenplay? For a guy who claims to be ready to quit, Snob sure is prolific.

Not Luke from D.A.R.T !

DRINKING IS ALSO MORE FUN WITH BRAKES. ALSO: PEOPLE LOOK VERY STUPID WHEN DRINKING OUT OF THAT DEVICE.

Yes BSNYC I know you are Luke from DART.

A.H. Al-Qadaffi,

I sent those on rosie's behalf (with permission) and told bsnyc not to worry about credit. So, blame me.

The shame I feel for my home city. Is this how NYers feel when confronted with Williamsburg?

i cant believe you race to see who read the blog first. what do you win?

two_wheels_good said...

I'll never tell people I'm from Richmond ever again. Just when I thought the hipster/ugly fixed gear craze was on the wane around here...

techb3 said...

by the way openyoureyes, second place is first loser.

AMRcyclist said...

Did that old funnel trick 20 years ago (only once, I must confess). It looks nerdy looking at it now. Thought you guys would be taking some fancy drugs instead...

g said...

AMRcyclist,
if my memory serves me right, we ALSO took fancy drugs. right about it looking stupid, though.

AskReamer said...

My friends have a game in SF where we punch each other whenever we see someone in that purple American Apparel hoodie. It's like the new punchbuggy/slugbug. On any given Sunday you'll see like 8 before 3:00. Best to watch out lest you get bruised.

g said...

askreamer,
does it have to be purple?

Anonymous said...

Balding and using a threadless stem, man that guy is trying way to hard.

Cycle Ninja said...

Snob, these two-a-days are more appropriate to spring football. Seriously, man, you're going to spoil us.

Keep it up.

Anonymous said...

askreamer.

we have a similar game (crusty punch) in florida for the seasonal crusty kids that winter here. nov-feb is a sore period.

1 for the crusty.
+1 for each dog.
+2 if they a feather somewhere on their person.
+3 for ass-flaps.

AMRcyclist said...

g,
That restores my faith on human kind.
Thanks,
AMR

What's with those dudes? There are no chicks at their party. They gay trackstanders? (Not that there's anything wrong with that).

And that dude in the second picture...where the hell's his teeth?

hipsters taking beer bong rips and cyclists doping...this is the only team worth covering.

At Marymoor velodrome in Seattle we had to do 3 of those before each match sprint. Then hilarity would ensue.

Frued would say: Somtimes a beer funnel hose is just a funnel hose.

But not this time.

leroy said...

Thank God for the comments explaining those pictures.

I thought that was some sort of new fangled urine test.

Imagine my relief.

Beer bongs and fixed gear kids. So cool.

Well, Pouily Fume, whilst also watching the Masters, but otherwise the principle is sound.

yeah ricky!

Clayton said...

If BSNYC is Luke from DART then I saw him with Prolly and the fat guy from DART at the Levee last Friday (DART, you guys are terrible pool players). I was outside waiting on some friends when I had the joy of watching Prolly showboat some BMX derived freestyling in the street in front of the bar. And by joy, I mean to imply I was embarrassed for him, though in reality I am sure people in williamsburg actually are impressed by hipsters riding backwards outside of bars.

FFS... how old are these people? I didn't know 14 year olds could grow beards and afford track bikes.

lol...I was just going to post about the purple. What's up with you hip guys wearing purple all the time now? It's like a pack of wiry, scrawny Grimaces escaped from the sub-levels of McDonaldland. Actual "colors" are now trends? I thought that only happened in the fashion world.

Oh wait...
